My family, however, is more used to eating black beans instead of pinto beans. In Mexico, there’s a large variety of beans, some of which are grown in small regions and are unknown to other parts of the country. Even though I’ve lived in the central and northern states of Mexico, where people favor “Bayo” bean (a variety of brown bean whose color can vary between light and dark brown), I am more accustomed to black beans. Black beans are more common in the areas around the Gulf of Mexico, as well as in the States of Veracruz, Tabasco, Campeche, and Yucatan.

Since Bayo beans are not easily found here in the United States, we tend to use the popular Pinto beans as a substitute, and often use them to accompany Mexican dishes. Beans, corn, and chili peppers have been the foundation of Mexican cuisine since Pre-Hispanic times, and are consumed for breakfast, lunch, and dinner by some families to this day.
